Elephant Hill | Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
Established in 2003, Elephant Hill is located within a stone’s throw of the Pacific Ocean on the idyllic Te Awanga coast of Hawke’s Bay on New Zealand’s North Island. It is the dream of Reydan and Roger Weiss who first fell in love with the beauty of Te Awanga when visiting from Germany in 2001. Together they envisaged owning a state-of-the-art winery, merging the traditional values of winemaking with an innovative approach and contemporary style to produce exceptional wines to savour and enjoy.
With the majestic elephant as the company's namesake, Elephant Hill has over 61 hectares of vineyards in Te Awanga, Gimblett Gravels and Bridge Pa. Under the supervision of winemaker Steve Skinner they produce award-winning wines; classical, aromatic whites and world-class reds.
